Hi folks, Just want to tell you that we took possession of a Neata Eata today. It is a device to help people with physical disabilities remain independent in feeding themselves. Peter was assessed for it about six weeks ao and the LA have paid for it. Will keep you posted on our progress.

Keeping up with the Magics Toy. Our Clos a Mat arrives on Monday and that should just about complete the east wing development! Only 13 weeks of upheaval. I hope to learn how to upload photos on messages nd show members pictures of these devices. Doubt there will be human models ith them.

Hi Magic,

My husband has been using the Neater Eater since September last year. With failing arm and hand strength it has maintained his independence and weight! Eating requires lots of concentration and it is takes time however he wouldn't be without it. Similar to Pete's recent post hubby was advised to have a PEG fitted some 2 years ago. He felt he was being pushed into a proceedure that wasn't yet necessary. He accepts it maybe required in the future however wants to put it off for as long as possible.

It's portable as well - ours has been to Arran and last week to Centre Parcs - he draws the line at taking it to restaurants - however it could be done!!
Hope it is of use Magic.:D

Pepper, good to hear Neata eater is so useful. Caution about PEG. Peter back 2 weeks from hospital and swallow has deteriorated. Coughing and choking are frightening. I am so pleased we have the PEG to fall back on. Probably not relevant but do not wait too long for procedure..
